colder air is drier air ... [attachment=16019]http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2651255/
That must be a Phantom RD quote above!!!Obviously there is not spontaneous generation of cold and flu viruses, although they will spontaneously mutate. I believe there are multiple factors for the increased prevalence of the cold and flu in the winter.Increased stress of the immune system from the cold weatherI find that sometimes I'll get the sniffles just from cold weather. So, it may create a better environment for the viruses to land in the lungs, as well as spreading more mucous around the environment.School. Whether or not one has direct contact with school children, undoubtedly we all have contact with someone who does. The increased social contacts during the school year allow for the cold and flu to spread easier.Perhaps people spending more time, on average, insideIf the viruses are damaged by drying out, then the more moisture in the air, the longer they can last outside of the body. Perhaps the cold is also protective for the viruses when they are outside of the body.
"Cecilia Ethelridge Parmesan Fromage The 3rd"Complete balderdash! My MP is going to hear about this.Obviously, that is Cecilia Ethelridge Parmesan Fromage The 4th.
so the only reason to wear clothing is to not cause the body stress and thus make it not so susceptible to catching a cold ie: temperature affects the immune system eh ?
